Message from the Conference President

The objective of the International Online Conference, titled עברית בקוונה תחילה: Teaching Hebrew as an additional language to diverse populations in Israel and around the world, is to encompass a range of issues pertaining to the field. The conference will focus on an additional language that serves both as a medium of communication and as the topic of extensive research. Its uniqueness lies both in the fact that the emphasis will be placed on teaching, and in the fact that it is an international online conference. Since the conference is intended for populations and groups in Israel and around the world, its aim is to find the common denominator among them as well as to concentrate on the things that make them different.
